GoGreen Conference

Brenna Davis, Vice President of Social and Environmental Responsibility at PCC Community Markets delivers the closing keynote at the GoGreen Conference  

Then, local business leaders discuss corporate activism in the panel discussion "When Brands Take a Stand -- The Business Case for Corporate Activism." Beyond internal policies and practices, corporations are increasingly weighing in on a variety of public policy issues. This closing plenary draws on the leadership and activism of Microsoft, the Seattle Storm, and Fremont Brewing, examining what drives companies to take a stand, how risks are weighed, and the price of staying silent.

Steve Lippman, Director of Corporate Responsibility, Microsoft
Sara Nelson, Co-Founder and Owner, Fremont Brewing
Alisha Valavanis, President and General Manager, Seattle Storm
